  • Great mystery, and we learn some more about Jim's background

    Jim gets a message from his old commanding officer from Korea, only to learn that the man has died in an accident. The military wants to know what, if anything, the colonel told him, and the man's daughter hires Rockford because she doesn't believe it was an accident.

    We learn about some of Sgt./Private Rockford's actions in Korea, ranging from setting up pool halls to a poignant moment at the end of the show where we learn Col. Bowie saved Jim's life. Jim owed him one, and closing the case on his murder allows him to put the ghost away. Nice chemistry between Garner and the colonel's daughter, and Jim is in fine smart-ass form. After being dressed down by a colonel on the case, Rockford says "the nice thing about being a civilian is you outrank generals and colonels." TV and movie tough guy Charles Napier turns up as the corrup deputy who wants nothing more than to "mess" Rockford up, to which Rockford counters, "You couldn't mess up a bed."

    All in all, a solid "Rockford Files." It's nice to learn a little bit more about how Jim got to be the way he is, and it's clear that the Army was not the place for him.
